21st August 2015

Hearts become first Premiership club to join Scotch Beef Club.

Heart of Midlothian Football Club have today become the first Scottish Premiership club to become a member of Quality Meat Scotland’s Scotch Beef Club.

To celebrate, Jambos winger, Sam Nicholson, tucked into a delicious Scotch Beef PGI roll - a nutritious boost ahead of the team’s game against Partick Thistle tomorrow.

Whether enjoying a game, attending a corporate event or celebrating a special occasion, guests will now have the option of selecting succulent Scotch Beef PGI from the menu at Tynecastle, the Premiership club’s home ground.

Supplied by Linlithgow-based Campbells Prime Meat, a member of the QMS Scotch Catering Butchers Club, guests can be safe in the knowledge that when they choose Scotch Beef they are supporting genuine local production and high standards of assurance and welfare.

The Scotch Beef Club offers membership to aspirational restaurants that are proud and committed to serve Scotch Beef. Applicants vary from Michelin starred to smaller diners that are devoted to local sourcing and serve well-prepared fresh food for every day occasions.

The Club welcomes Scottish Premiership teams to apply for membership so visitors can enjoy consistently good quality food on a regular basis at their home grounds, ensuring high standards are delivered off the pitch as well as on.

Margaret Stewart, Marketing Manager at Quality Meat Scotland, said: “We are delighted to welcome Heart of Midlothian Football Club into the Scotch Beef Club. 

“Like the Scottish Premiership, the Scotch Beef Club is proud to promote the very best that Scotland has to offer. 

“Hearts have now joined this very special group of restaurants who unashamedly base their cooking on quality ingredients and who care about where their meat comes from and how it has been reared.” 

Graeme Pacitti, Head of Hospitality at Hearts said: “Tynecastle has earned a reputation for top class matchday hospitality and some of the best conference and banqueting facilities in Edinburgh.

“We believe in giving our clients a premier culinary experience, just as our team delivers a top product on the field.

“We are proud to have gained this significant accolade and that we are leading the way in an innovative use of Scottish quality produce.”
